[Reminder] $10K Law School Scholarship Deadline April 15th.

Dear Dean Peters:

I am writing to remind you of the deadline for the $10,000 scholarship opportunity sponsored by BARBRI Law Preview, April 15, 2019.

We believe that in the right hands, a law degree is a powerful tool to extinguish injustice and bring about positive social change. That is why we are seeking to help one deserving student who plans to enter law school in Fall 2019, by contributing $10,000 towards their first-year tuition with the One Lawyer Can Change the World Scholarship

To qualify, a student must simply submit a 500-word essay that explains how they expect to use their law degree to make a positive impact on our world, and how $10k would make a positive impact on their world. 

If you know a deserving student who would benefit from this scholarship opportunity, I would encourage you to have them being the application by clicking here.

Thank you for sharing this opportunity with your 2019 applicants. 

Best,Don Macaulay
